Flourishes & Spellbinders blog hop



We don’t need to tell you that tags and labels are two of the trendiest items to hit the card making market in a long time! And, to help you add style and pizazz to your creations, Flourishes has teamed up with Spellbinders Paper Arts to make sure you have the perfect set of stamps to match a darling set of tag style dies. Wonderfully whimsical and reminiscent of Grandma’s calico prints, Flourishes  “charming” set offers three labels that coordinate perfectly with Spellbinders Grommet Tags (S4-322). Designed by Becky Fleck, you'll also find 6 beautiful sentiments and 4 accent stamps to dress up your labels! Pair that with Flourishes Country Charm Borders and you have the perfect set to make darling note cards in minutes. Flourishes coordinating Country Charm Borders set features five border strips that match the labels set to a tee. What fun!


The card I am sharing today, uses both the sets mentioned above.  The sets coordinate so perfectly together, and add in that the stamps coordinate with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags...sold!  Winner, winner chicken dinner.  
With the temperatures nice and toasty here in the south, I wanted to use bright cheerful colors.  The card stock is textured, so I decided to use nice pigment inks from Colorbox to ensure nice even coverage on the paper.
Some people like to die cut then stamp, but I prefer to stamp my image, then die cut it out.  There is no right or wrong way, this is just the way I like to do it.  Since the Grommet Tag templates cut holes in the die cut for you, all I needed to do was run twine through the template, and pop it up with foam tape.
I added some black bling to the card, to help make the colors pop a little, and rounded the bottom corner.



Make sure to visit the rest of the designers playing along today!
Thank You Flourishes for inviting me!
